SHORT BIO
Lance Noll is from Greensburg, KS and has recently completed his M.S. degree
in Veterinary Biomedical Science. Lance is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree
in Pathobiology at Kansas State under Dr. T.G. Nagaraja, and following his
schooling, plans to find a role in academia as a professor of microbiology.

RESEARCH OBJECTIVES
A Fo u r - p l e x R e a l - t i m e P C R a s s a y, b a s e d o n r f b E , s t x 1 , s t x 2 ,
and eae genes, for the Detection and Q uantifica tion of
S h i g a t ox i n - p r o d u c i n g E s c h e r i c h i a c o l i O 1 5 7 i n C a t t l e F e c e s
Objective: Develop a multiplex, real-time quantitative PCR (mqPCR) assay for
the detection and quantification of E. coli O157 in cattle feces based on genes
that code for serogroup specific O157 antigen (rfbE O157) and three major
virulence factors, Shiga toxins 1 and 2 (stx1 and stx2) and intimin (eae).

Evalua tion of chromID EHEC Agar for Detection of Seven
M a j o r S e r o g r o u p s o f S h i g a Tox i n - P r o d u c i n g E s c h e r i c h i a c o l i
(STEC) from Cattle Feces
Objective: To evaluate the performance of two chromogenic media, a chromID
EHEC (bioMérieux SA, Marcy-l'Etoile, France) and a MacConkey agar-based
medium with sucrose, sorbose, novobiocin and tellurite (modified Possé medium;
MP) for the detection of seven STEC in cattle feces.

Af fect Detection Sensitivity of Six Major Serogroups of
S h i g a Tox i n - P r o d u c i n g E s c h e r i c h i a c o l i ( S T E C ) i n C a t t l e
Feces
Objective: Determine whether pooling of IMS beads affect sensitivity of
detection of the six STEC in cattle feces and compare detection of STEC by
individual or pooled beads in fecal samples spiked with STEC or collected from
naturally-shedding cattle.
A Comparison of Culture- and PCR-Based Methods to Detect
S ev e n M a j o r S e r o g r o u p s o f S h i g a Tox i n - P r o d u c i n g
Escherichia coli (STEC) in Ca ttle Feces
Objective: Develop a culture-based method for the detection of six non-O157
STEC serogroups in cattle feces and compare this method, and the existing
culture method for detection of STEC O157, with PCR method for detection of
all seven STEC serogroups in cattle feces.
Concentra tion of Escherichia coli O157 in Ca ttle feces: An
Overview of Significance and Quantification Methods
Objective: Describe quantification methods for E. coli O157 in cattle feces,
including both traditional and emerging techniques, and report on available
enumeration data. Additionally, the role of super-shedders and their impact on
transmission of E. coli O157 into the environment and subsequent hide
contamination is discussed.
